Learn More About Our Values

Grace College's School of Education has, in just two years, radically changed my approach to teaching, learning, and my approach to learners. The professors routinely model godly character, sharpen students' competence by challenging their thinking and expecting them to own their learning, and encourage all students to glorify God through service, both inside and outside the classroom. I have no doubt I will leave the School of Education ready to educate my future students well in the schools.
